School Matinee Program

Entering its 17th year, our School Matinee Program provides educational programming for over 15,000 students annually from a six plus county area. Utilizing all volunteer performers, this unique program introduces students of all ages to what is on many occasions their first formal arts experience. In addition the Arts Center is committed to using student actors in this series giving kids a chance to "reach a new stage."

This ongoing summer program consists of two, two-week sessions of intensive theatrical training for students in first through sixth grades, including classes in acting, stage movement and dance, voice and music.  Each session concludes with a show that is open to the public.

Summer Youth Musical

We kicked off this exciting program in 2007 with the blockbuster "High School Musical" and we haven't slowed down yet.  Our commitment to providing a summer outlet for High School students to cut loose continued with the smash hits "Footloose" , "West Side Story", "High School Musical 2" and "13".   Keep your ear to the ground for the next big summer hit.  Auditions will be posted on our website.
